Wind chill warning remains in place; winter storm expected this weekend

MARSHALL COUNTY — The National Weather Service has kept the wind chill warning issued yesterday in place until 11 a.m. this morning. Bitterly cold conditions continue, followed by snow accumulations later this weekend.

High pressure centered over Michigan overnight has allowed temperatures to fall below zero over much of the area with calm winds. As the high moves east this morning, winds will gradually increase, causing wind chills to fall to around 10 degrees below zero. With the expected temperature rise, the wind chill advisory is not expected to continue.

A cold front is expected to move across the region Saturday. The National Weather Service predicts it will stall over the Ohio Valley Saturday night with a low pressure system moving along the stalled frontal boundary Saturday night through Sunday night. This may result in heavy snow.
